Hi everybody.
After making and mounting a 4.25 rim,tire and 3 speed to my XYZ chopper frame my chain line just doesn't match up any more. It seems the jack shaft chain to front chain ring rubs the bottom of the engine case. The "idler set up from the old wheel won't work in this setup.
I was wondering if there is any "sick bike parts" engineers would consider making new side plates that drop the right side drive chain drive down another inch or so. that would clear the obstruction and quite possibly open up a new product for these extended frame, chainring forward of seat down tube applications. I am using the motor mount from "barry" on ebay slightly modified to bring engine back to center.
Any and all help or suggestions accepted.

Note to moderators:If in wrong spot please move....

Thank you, Bobby Bass
